THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

The world’s best dad joke “And the winner is…”

 The world’s best dad joke can be revealed after thousands of “funny” fathers battled it out in a competition that was no laughing matter.

Other Nothing hits the spot quite like a good dad joke.

More than 2,700 gag-loving dads submitted their very best – or worst – jokes in celebration of Father’s Day.

Dad jokes are popular among grandads too

#BestDadJokes was trending on Twitter as fathers battled it out to win the Aldi Mamia Best Dad Joke competition.

Stand-up comedian Mark Watson was enlisted to judge the competition and picked father-of-two Austin May from Bedworth, Warwickshire, as the overall winner.

His winning joke was:

I once hired a limo but when it arrived, the guy driving it walked off!

I said “Excuse me? Are you not going to drive me?”

The guy told me that the price didn’t include a driver…

… so I’d spent £400 on a limo and have nothing to chauffeur it!

Among Mark’s other favourite entries were:

 

  • Why did the man fall down the well? Because he didn’t see that well!
  • What did the pirate say on his eightieth birthday? “Aye Matey!”
  • Someone has glued my pack of cards together – I don’t know how to deal with it.
  • What do you call a zombie who cooks stir fries? Dead man wok-ing
  • I was wondering why the frisbee kept looking bigger and bigger, and then it hit me
  • I was stood behind a customer at an ATM and he turned around and said “could you check my balance?” – so I pushed him. His balance wasn’t that great.
  • Why did the scarecrow get an award? Because he was out standing in his field!
  • What did the daddy buffalo say to his son when he left for work? Bison
  • Two guys walked into a bar. The third guy ducked.
  • What do you call a blind dinosaur? A Doyouthinkhesaurus!

Men all over the country will be sharing their dad jokes on Father’s Day

Explaining what makes the ideal dad joke, Watson said: “The perfect dad joke has got to be equal parts cringe and cheese – it’s got to make your kids embarrassed to be in the same room as you but still make them laugh. It’s a fine balance!

“When judging this competition, I was keeping an eye out for those jokes that were so bad, they were actually good.

“You don’t have to be a dad to tell a dad joke, but I think telling some truly awful ones really is a rite of passage when becoming a dad.”

Real insulting things.” He says he is usually called “Pig-Pen”. No real first name or surname for “Pig-Pen” was ever subsequently given in later Peanuts strips. Being constantly dirty is a trait that “Pig-Pen” is best known for. When he takes a deep breath (to sing, for example), the dust rises briefly around him.

Schroeder is a major male character in the Peanuts comic strip by Charles M. Schulz. He is distinguished by his precocious skill at playing the piano, as well as by his love of classical music and the composer Ludwig van Beethoven in particular.

Although Peppermint Patty can at times get on her nerves; it bothers Marcie how poorly Peppermint Patty does in school, and how she will never do her work.

GRANDAD’S ONE LINER JOKE OF THE DAY

I guess you have had enough one liner jokes above – but then again I can’t resist it.

Two grandmas, Agnes and Esme, are meeting at a café. They’re having a nice chat over cake and coffee when suddenly Agnes remarks, “Um, Esme, you seem to have a suppository in your left ear…”

 

Esme is surprised and fishes the suppository out of her ear, looks at it for a while and sighs, “Well I guess I know where to find my hearing aid then.”

LOVE IS…

Love is…when she is the boss and you love it!

TURN…TURN…TURN!
